Dose .—Take from three to ten pills, til! they operate, two or three times daily. The use of the pills must be persevered in till a cure is effected. Price 25 Cents per Box, DR. GOODE’S Celebrated Female Pills. These Pills are atrongly recommended to the notice of the Ladies as a safe und efficient remedy in remov­ ing those complaints peculiar to their sex, from want of Exercise, or general Debility o f the System, Ob' structions, Suppressions, and Irregularity of the Men­ ses; at the same time strengthening, cleansing, and giving tone to the Stomach and Bowels, and producing a new and healthy action throughout the system gen­ erally. They create Appetite, correct indigestion, re­ move Giddiness and Nervous Headache, and are emi­ nently useful in those Flatulent Complaints which dis­ tress Females so much at the “ T u r k o f L i f e . ” They obviate Costiveness, and counteract all Hysterical and Nervous Affections, likewise afford soothing and per­ manent relief in Fluor Albus, or Whites, and in the moat obatinale cases of Chlorosis, or Green Sickness, they invariably restore the pallid and delicate female to health and vigor. These Pills have gained the sanction and approba­ tion o f the most eminent Physicians in the United States, and many mothers can likewise testify to their extraordinary efficacy. To married females, whose expectations of the tenderest pledges o f connubial hap­ piness have been defeated, these Pills may be truly es­ teemed a blissful boon. They soon renovate all func~ tional debility, and i f taken (according to directions,) obviate all morbid action. They dispel that fulsome and disagreeable sensation common to females a t each monthly return, likewise the attendant pains in the back, side or loins; they generally counteract the nau­ sea, vomiting, and other nervous affections in Chloro­ sis, or green sickness, in a few days, and if continued (according to d irections,) soon effect a perfect cure.— Nothing is so signally efficacious in recruiting the pal­ lid and sickly female (who has been during her life ir­ regular and sensitive) as the FEM ALE PILLS. These pills invigorate the whole system, improve the memory, and enliven the imagination,create appetite and restore tranquil repose. Many hundred females can testify of their efficacy, and many Physicians (in this city, as a l­ so throughout the United Stales) can bear testimony to their merits and extraordinary virtues. They are invaluable to enfeebled and relaxed females, who from . repeated and difficult labors are*fi#»«ted w:th and infirmities, in which case they are highly useful, strengthening a t the same time the stomach, the back, the weakened organs, and the whole constitution. Dr. Goode’s Celebrated Female Pills are o f two kinds, namely: No. 1, or Laxative Pills, and No. 2, or Res­ torative Pills. They are for all the following diseases: Suppression, Irregularity, or Retention of the Menses, Fluor Albus, Chlorosis, or Green Sickness, Costive­ ness, Gravel, Incontinence of Urine, Nervous Affec­ tions, Hyrterics, Prolapsus Uteri, or Falling of the VKomb, and Piles. These Pills are also particularly adapted to the male as well as the female sex, for the cure of the following diseases: Nervous Diseases, Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Billious Diseases, and all cases of Hypochondriacism, Low Spirits, Palpitation of the Heart, Nervous Irritability, Nervous Weak/iess, indi­ gestion, Loss o f Appetite, Heartburn, General Debili­ ty, Bodily Weakness, or F latulency, Headaches, Night­ mare, Rheumatism, Asthma, Tic Douloureux, Cramp, Spasmodic Affections, and those who are victims to that most excrutiating disorder, Gout; also, Pains in ths Side, Chest, Limbs, Head, Stomach or Back, Dim­ ness or Confusion of Sight, Alternate Flushes of Heat and Chilliness, Tremors, W atchings, Agitation, Anxi­ ety, bad Dreams and Spasms. Thia Medicine is acknowledged to be one of the most valuable ever discovered, as a purifier of the blood and fluids. It is superior to Sarsaparilla, whether as a su­ dorific or alternative. Directions for use. —Pills No. 1 must he taken from three to six, or more, s t bed time, sufficient to operate briskly, till the desired object is effected. Take No. 2 according to the directions as on the box.

Her mother had been similarly em ployed; but her work, some unfinished muslin,was lying in her lap, while her bead rested upon her hand, as if she were in deep thought. ‘ Mother are you unwell ?—you look pale.’ ‘ No m y child,’ replied the mother, in a sad, calm tone, more sorrowful than it was her wont. The daughter put aside her work and took her parent’s hand, gazing, wilh a troubled look into her face.

E llen,’ said she, as she drew her child to her bo­ som, and imprinted a kiss on her fair forehead—six­ teen years ago, this evening, your father bent affec­ tionately over iny sick coucii, to gaze upon his first born— h is daughter— y o u rself, m y dear child ! and twelve years ago this same evening, I bent over his sick couch. The angel of death was there also, and 1 became a widow'! The tears o f the mother and daughter were mingled. Mr. and Mrs. Lemand were of English birth.— They were married in their native land; but soon after, left for this country. T h e y were not, by any means rich, but enjoyed a comfortable independence. Mr. Lemand came over as an agent for a house in Liverpool, and resided in New-York. Here Ellen was born. After a residence of about five years in New-York, the house in which Lcmnnd was engaged became bankrupt. A lew fragments were all that lie was enabled to save from the wreck; and broken in spirits, poor in health, Mr. L. was left to struggle a- long in a strange land as lie could. For two years he strove (o gain the fooling he had lost ; but he only •wrestled'\with air.’ He was taken sick: and soon died, leaving bis wife and child a slender stock to support them in the rough journey of life. Mrs. Lemand had no friends in England to whom she could appeal in her extremity. She bad rich relations, or rather an uncle; but she never had any intercourse with him, and probably her existence was entirely unknown to him— at best, uncared for. She toon found her little stock running low, arid she began to cast about for means o f support. She was not one of those who sit down in idleness, repining at her lot, and murmuring at the decrees of Providence. She had faith in the \promises and her heart had a lean­ ing place which the world knew not. Being expert with the needle, she made application among her few acquaintances for needlework, and by constant indus­ try w a s enabled to keep w a n t from the door, and be- stow upon her daughter lhat education which in adver- sitv and prosperity is alike a blessing. Ellen grew up*all a fond mother’s heart could desire. She early made herself useful, and soon the united efforts of mother and daughter allowed them to add some of the luxuries to the necessaries o f life. Their dwelling was retired from the noise and bus­ tle ofthe city. It was an humble and pleasent abode. The hand of taste was visible in all that appertained to it. The rooms were plainly though neatly and comfortably furnished, and contentment i f not hap­ piness, reigned there. Such was the situation of af­ fairs on the evening when our story commenced. It was the anniversary o f her daughter’s birth as well as of her husband’s death. No wonder the brow of the mother was shaded. The graves of buried hopes were re-opened, the fountains o f memory loosed. It was the resurrection hour of departed joys. She thought o f the trials she had passed through, of her far oil' home, where, in childhood she was blest with a mother’s love, and a father’s care, and a sister’s i companionship—of her lost partner. All those came thronging on her thoughts—the white and dark spots — the shadows and sunbeams of life. N c wonder the teardnop stood in her eye. Again and again she pressed to her child to her bosom; for she was the only earthly treasure lhat remained to her— (he sole link that chained ber affections to this world. “ May thy path through life be less thorny than thy mother’s Ellen ! Nevertheless, not my will be done!” As she gave utterance to ibis humble rtfHanArher eye brightened, and the shadows lifted fr6m fler spirits, and the wonted smile of co’tttea’t again-lit up her coun­ tenance. W e said*that by their industry they were enabled to add some of the luxuries to the necessaries o f life. This was true for a time when prosperity smiled aver the Country. But dark shadows began io creep over the land. The tide o f fortune was suddenly checked, and began tojcq/ftje- Reusnchment became tbe or­ der o f the day. Superffuities.were discarded,|and the closest economy was studied. M any persons were consequently thrown out o f employ, and distress be­ gan to pervade the lower classes. Mrs. Lemand es­ caped not the general doom. D a y after day she found less employment for her needle. Many o f those who furnished her with work were obliged to in- form her that they had nq more to offer; and those ; who continued to afford employment, were so uncer­ tain in their calls upon her, that she barely earn­ ed enough to supply the simplest necessaries of life. Mrs. L. viewed the da<k cloud settling over her late siumy prospects with an anxious eye. W inter was \approaching. The times more and more pressing. The inclement season called for new outlays. How were these demands on her purse to be met? Even by the most pinching economy she barely received enough to live from day to day. She found it neces­ sary, at least, to dispose of household articles, from time to time, at a great sacrifice, to procure the means ofsubsistance. It is a dreadful condition for a female* brought up in independence, to be thus situated. A- la s ! how many have been thus placed; been thus doomed to witness tbe gradual wasting away o f their little property, to satisfy the calls o f hunger—or, what is nearly as imperative, the urgent solicitations of an icy-hearted creditor! To this was a Mrs. L . reduced. Article after article disappeared, until she retained scarcely enough for her limited use. And how did Ellen bear this reverse ? Like the daughter o f such a mother! More anxious on her mother’s account than her own, she did all that one could do,' in her situation, to sustain her, and to alleviate her sufferings. A murmuring word never escaped her lips. Often when their board was reduced so low as to afford hard­ ly sufficient to satisfy one person—often would Ellen plead indisposition, that her mother might not divide the slender stock, although the pangs of hunger were gnawing within her. Notwithstanding this self-sacri­ fice, she was doomed to see her beloved parent grad­ ually sink under the troubles that surrounded her. As proverty came upon them, they were obliged to leave the comfortable roof that had sheltered them, and lake up their abode in an obscure and unhealthy part o f the city. Cut off from their former employ­ ment, they were obliged to have recourse to such work as they could procure. They were now dependant on the slender pay recieved for washing clothes for the boarders o f a neighboring hotel. The burden of this fell on Ellen, for her mother’s health and strength had become so reduced, she was only able to render very slight assistance- 'Ellen faltered not. She pros­ ecuted her work with an air o f cheerfuluess, and strove by every act in her power to keep up the sinking spir­ its of her mother. Yet she did not—could not, shut her eyes to her parent’s gradual failing; and often, when her mother slept, would her’firmness give way, and the hot tears soak the midnight p illow. W e have refrained from describing the person of Ellen. W e have desired that the reader should first become acquainted with her mind, and feel an inter­ est in her on account o f her good qualities, rather than the beapJtv j £ lycr person. Still, Ellen lacked not these extCTNtgraces which, if’thby do not constitute woman’s chief charms, still render her an object of greater attention and admiration. In a gay and fash­ ionable assembly sh e would have shown among the brightest; and yet, never did she appear so lovely, as when arrayed in her humble garb, she performed with a willing heart, those menial services for her mother’s support. CHAPTER II. It was a cold blustering evening in November, a raging north-easterly storm had prevailed through the day, and as night shut in, the wind and sleet swept sullenly through the streets, and drearily against the buildings. The shops were nearly closed. The lamps shed a dim and flickering light on the slippery pavement, over which, occasionally, some passenger, bending to the blast, would hurry on his way. On this evening, emerging from a narrow, dreary looking Street, a young female was seen struggling aloug in evident haste. Turning the corner, and passing two or three blocks, she ascended the steps ofa large house before whose door an expiring lamp threw out a few faint gleams. After hesitating a moment, as il to recover herself, she rang the bell. The door was shortly opened by a young man, who hastily inquired her wants. “ Does Dr. Heabert reside here?” was asked in a timid, irresolute voice. \ M y name in Herbert,” was the reply, in a tone that evidently showed that the speaker was uot al­ together pleased with the call. “ Con not you visit a lady— a poor woman, correct­ ing herself— “ who is dangerously ill?” \ W ill not to-morrow do?” and the young man drew back, casting, a significant glance at the driving sleet, as he partly closed the door, “ will not to mor­ row do— I have an engage— ” “ For the love o f God, sir, do not refuse m e !” ifflH terrupted the female, in a trembling and beseeching voice — \ m y mother is sick—very sick— the distance is short—you shall be paid!” \ \Cannot you fiud some one else, M iss?” said the physician, in a more yielding t o n e . \ \ Oh, no sir! I have been refused by two others. M y poor mother I fear is dying.— Oh, i t y o u have a mother you will go with me— i f you have riot* b memory I charge you not to slight the orphan’s er!” And the speaker turned ber eyes full upon young man. lt was very pale, but strikingly beautiful. W hether the efiecliug appeal or the lovely coun­ tenance influenced the young physician, it matters not; but he hesitated no longer. Hastily throwing on a cloak, he followed her through two or three ob­ scure streets, and asthey were plungingdown an un­ lighted and dismal looking alley, he inquired i f they had much farther to go. \ This is the house sir,” said the female, stopping before a mean and shattered tenemeut, whose crazy irame could hardly withstand the heavy gusts tliat wept over it— “ Take care of the broken step, sir.” With this caution he picked his way inlo the lower entry, and followed his conductress to a scene ofsqual- lid wretchedness. A door was opened, and he was introduced iuto a dimly lighted room. H e startled on his entrance. The signs o f poverty he surely beheld; but it was not the poverty of crime and intemperance — the disgusting and revolting exhibition be expected to encouutcr. There was no appearance o f disorder — no unpleasant odor— no filthy floor and dirty sack of straw for a bed— too commonly found in lhe abodes of w a n t H e gazed about him in astonishment. The scanty furniture was plain, and ofthe cheapest kind; butevery thing was neat, and well arranged. A Small tallow candle gave light to the room. There was the white pine table,covered with a c l cloth, on which rested a bible.: the rush bottOH&l chairs, three in number; the well scoured floW and the neat b ed; straw to be sure—but covered wjtn spot­ less white (though coarse) sheets, and a p A in coun­ terpane, a few smoky embers burnt oajne hearth.— The physiciau had but a moment t o / i e w the unex­ pected appearance of the room, aytne girl thr«w off her bonnet and knelt by the bed'side, displaying in the act a form o f perfect symmetry — not the less at­ tractive for being arrayed imgarments o f the cheap­ est material. y “ Mother, dear mothpKthe doctor ha# come to see you !” whispered the/neeling one, in a voice exceed- m gly sweet and tender, \ Out o f my sjgnt, girl! W h y follow me forever like a curse witb'your perpetual cry for bread— bread! Drink tears, ad 1 do, and let them satisfy you !—and the sick wojium tossed her arms impatiently about.

I gave her the last mouthful—robbed myself of the sole remaining crust—for what—to feed a viper? t f i y you never be cursed with an ungrateful child!** she fell exhausted on the pillow. “ o , Sir, she raves,” said the daughter depreead^g- ly : \for tjpo days I have hearffotfly reproaches fitful one wfio nev*r opened her lips but ia kindness!** \ You* must not heed them, Miss, said tbeDbctpc* who had been closely examining the patient **S t is tfc »0 effect of disease.

Be not troubled, therefore, when restor­ ed to her right mind, her affections will be unchanged.” ‘‘But will her senses be restored ?—is there hewn?** said the girl in an anxious tone. “ Your mother is a very sick woman—very; but her case is far from desperate. With proper care etui treatment she may recover, and my services not he wanted.” The daughter thanked him—not, with words—but in a more expressive language—that of the bnut, which the physiciau read in her glowing face and sparkling eyes. W e presume we need not remind the reader that the sick one was Mrs. Lemand. Io assisting RUm to accomplish some work which she had been nnw pectedly called upon to perform, she had overtasked* her feeble strength and exposed herself. A aavctu' cold ensued, which terminated in a lever- _ K M would immediately have called in a physician, but her mother considered her sickness as a slight matter, preferring rather to suffer than to exhaust their misar able pittance in paying for medical advice. Lemand grew worse. Indeed, so rapid was the die- ease, E Hen dare not leave her Twice she desponds* ed a child ofa neighbor for a physician, as she feu jd her m o ther’s w its began to wanner.

Ellen, however, had, like the yoaug in gen­ eral, a better opinion of human nature. Always rea­ dy at the call o f suffering, she amagined that «*Ihiv were like herself, and when the boy returned with.thv physician’s answer: \ Will be there directly,”—sbs waited impatiently, and listened lo catch every step. But she waited in vain. No physician CSO|t-r Her mother grew hourly worse. Ellen would hngm gone herself to get advife, but she was b f leaving her mother’s bed-side.

Ellen left the bedside, and taking from the taKiit drawer a purse, emptied its contents, cowisdiigef * number of small pieces with a few coppers, and ten­ dered them to the Doctor remarking, with emne trep­ idation, \ I know not this to be a sufficient fee, 1 will, endeavor to obtain the. exact amount.” The physician stood for a moment,, regarding thu, speaker with an embarrassed air: thao aaid, a« h r took the proffered change, “ I shall certaiuH rciuif to­ morrow—your mother’s case demands it. - Vet—-—,** . and he hesitated, while a slight flush pUSSufl tM vjjto faee; \ but, I liked to have forgotten it, there fa s ' receipt I wish to leave,” aad he sealed hiraaetfatfW table, while Ellen returned to adjust something'abeoC the table. ** You will recollect to give the powdsro I have left every two hours, and the drops immedi­ ately. Good evening, Miss Lemand; I trust your mother will be better in the morning,” and he took, his leave. Ellen took the folded paper to put it in her pane ; the sight of which caused her to sigh, for it was aa- tirely empty—when she was induced to look al th# recipe. She opened the paper; a bank oote for a generous sum fell from its folds, and the nntnnishod girl read, instead of a recipe : “ It is more blessed to give than to receive F* ( remainder next week .)
